Alumni Relations

Dear Alumnus,

Alumni Relations had planned a most exciting and informative range of activities for 2020 and started to action this programme of alumni activities in February. Unfortunately we had to place everything on hold in March - so only managed to see a few of our alumni at the Durban Alumni Association AGM in February and then at the two Cape Town events (an afternoon tea and a dinner at the Cape Grace Hotel) in March. The programme planned for 2020 will be amended and hopefully we will be able to proceed with our amended 2020 plans in 2021.

We have however still interacted with thousands of graduates through emails, written and telephonic communication as well as via various social media platforms and numerous webinars.

The country specific Facebook pages for alumni based in the United Kingdom, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Lesotho are active. Please let us know if you would like to join these Facebook groups.  There has also been considerable interest in the main Facebook page for all alumni - please do not forget to like us!

Communication via the websiteFacebookTwitter and SMS has increased and is an effective way of informing graduates of UKZN events and issues. The alumni Linkedin page has been closed, you can now join us on the UKZN Linkedin page. In order to invite alumni to the planned events and to keep everyone updated on University events – we are eager to secure the current contact details of alumni – especially email addresses and mobile telephone numbers. Also, please encourage any friends or relatives who are graduates and have not received any correspondence from the University in recent months to provide us with their updated contact details. This can be done via a quick email to or the website.

We look forward to interacting with you and hopefully seeing you at some of the events in the New Year.

With our very best wishes, 
The Alumni Relations Team.
